The managerial merry-go-round seems certain to gather pace once again this summer with some of the game’s biggest names currently out of work.
Here, the PA news agency takes a look at some of the leading candidates and where they may be suited to working in the men’s game next season.
Conte left Inter Milan just weeks after leading the club to a first Serie A title in 11 years. He reportedly decided to call it a day in frustration at the lack of funds available to him, but his pedigree is first-class with the former Italy boss having led Juventus to three successive titles and won the Premier League and FA Cup in his time at Chelsea. He has been linked with the vacancy at Tottenham.
Zidane called time on his second spell in charge at Real Madrid last month after his side were pipped to LaLiga’s title by rivals Atletico Madrid. Real were crowned champions under the former France international in the 2019-20 season following his return to the Bernabeu Stadium in March 2019. Having cited the demands of the job when he walked away from the club in 2018, after winning three successive Champions Leagues and the league, he may opt for a break. But should Mauricio Pochettino’s future lie away from Paris St Germain, his stature could prove attractive to the club’s owners.
